Support comes in many forms, from personal financial donations, to supplies donations, to grants. We appreciate any support you can offer us.
As with most community groups, the Senior Environment Corp (SEC) needs support to function. We need to purchase equipment and supplies, funds for training and for miscellaneous expenses such as this website, as well as for staff to coordinate the program. Even a small amount of money helps us sustain the SEC program.
For an equipment example, a Colorimeter (one piece of water monitoring equipment) retails for over $1,200, and each SEC group that participates in water monitoring needs several of these to monitor several streams regularly. In addition to the equipment itself, we also need to purchase the supplies for different tests.
Donations are accepted on-line or you can send a check to Nature Abounds (parent of the SEC program) at P.O. Box 12752, Olympia WA 98508. Nature Abounds is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit, so financial donations are tax-deductible.
In addition to cash funding, we can also use donations of the following types of supplies:
Office supplies – 3-ring binders, office paper, printer ink, etc.
Outdoor supplies – gloves, waders, gardening tools such as shovels and trowels
Gift Cards (for equipment and supplies) to stores like Lowes, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Target, Kmart. and even Amazon.
Also for training needs and volunteer recognition, we can use Gift Cards to grocery stores or restaurants.
